Devotional – His Unparalleled Mercy

Devotional Sun Icon

Who is a God like you, pardoning iniquity and passing over transgression for the remnant of his inheritance? He does not retain his anger forever, because he delights in steadfast love. Micah 7:18 ESV

The beautiful hymn Great God of Wonders! asks the rhetorical question “Who is a pardoning God like thee?” The answer, of course, is none! There is no other God who pardons sins like the Lord God Jehovah!

His mercy is unparalleled, His grace unequalled and His love unchanging! Praise God He delights in love! Praise God He does not retain His anger forever.

Great God of wonders all Thy ways
Display Thine attributes divine;
But the bright glories of Thy grace
Above Thine other wonders shine:
Who is a pard’ing God like Thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?

Such deep transgressions to forgive!
Such guilty sinners thus to spare!
This is thy grand prerogative,
And in this honor none shall share:
Who is a pard’ing God like Thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?

Pardon from an offended God!
Pardon for sins of deepest dye!
Pardon bestowed through Jesus’ blood!
Pardon that bring the rebel nigh!
Who is a pard’ing God like Thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?
